Rotork Training expands with purpose-built facilities in Singapore

Rotork's comprehensive valve actuation training activities have expanded with the opening of purpose-built facilities at Rotork Singapore in response to the continuous growth of Rotork product markets in the Far East.

Rotork’s long-established training centre at the company’s UK headquarters was originally born out of on-site service activity. As a result, to this day, the full-time training staff – now based in the UK, USA and Singapore – are all experienced site service engineers with practical ‘hands-on’ knowledge of Rotork’s wide range of actuation products. Drawing on years of practical experience, training programmes are tailored to suit individual customers’ asset ownership and their specific requirements, offering a more valuable solution than fixed training courses.

Training is available for all aspects of actuator ownership and is fully supported by actuated valve hardware for wiring, commissioning, dismantling and trouble-shooting exercises. Training, which can also be provided at customers’ premises anywhere in the world, is complemented with dedicated training literature, technical manuals and certification.

Training support is also available from a series of E-learning modules on the Rotork website, aimed at anyone with a requirement to commission and use Rotork actuators in the field. The modules consist of interactive learning programmes designed to be equally useful as a refresher course for those who deal with the equipment infrequently.

Training activities are widely utilised by Rotork customers in the oil, gas, power and water industries as well as Rotork agents and distributors. The availability of E-learning and the opening of the new facility in Singapore are both evidence of Rotork’s on-going commitment to provide these services on an increasingly accessible and localised basis.
